Tony Romo is expected to be ready for offseason workouts, with or without surgery

According to a recent report released by the Dallas Cowboys, Tony Romo is still continuing to let his left collarbone heal on its own.

In about a month, Romo will undergo a bone scan, and at that point, the Cowboys will determine whether or not Romo will undergo surgery.

The purpose of surgery is to strengthen Romo’s collarbone. He has suffered three broken collarbones in his career.

The recovery period for surgery, if Romo opts to undergo surgery, is six weeks. That puts him on track to be ready for April 18, the day Dallas begins their offseason workouts.

Romo will be itching to get back on the field. The 35-year-old quarterback played in just four games this year after suffering from two separate collarbone injuries.

Via the Cowboys report:

“We feel good about where he’s going to be,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said last week at the Senior Bowl. “I think he’s chomping at the bit.”

That’s great, because without Romo, Dallas’ offense was stagnant, and the team finished with a 1-11 record.
